How would you like to help out some of Vancouver’s homeless men and women this winter? You can help a homeless person stay warm by knitting a hat, mittens, scarf, sweater, socks or blanket and donating it to the Sheltering Stitch. Or you can donate those bits of your stash that may never make it onto your needles. The donated yarn will be knit by volunteers.
The Sheltering Stitch was founded and is coordinated by Vancouver author and avid knitter, Nancy Lee. A very sweet lady with a generous heart.
We’ve discovered that there are many benevolent knitters in Vancouver. Between September and December, 2006, the Lookout Emergency Aid Society was the appreciative recipient of 75 hand knit hats, 57 scarves, 10 sweaters, 5 blankets and 1 pair of gloves. Kudos to champion volunteer knitter, Nancy Chen, who donated 40 hats and 34 scarves!
Terri recently donated this box full of treasures:
Thank you Terri! And thanks to all of the generous donors and volunteer knitters. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
